"Disappointing Night"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
I had an unpleasant stay at the Salomar hotel. The night I checked in I went to my room, put my luggage and headed out. Once I got back into the room, I got into the bed and found out my bed had stains on it. The stains looked like blood (i took a picture). I immediately called the front desk from the phone provided by the hotel and called five times, but no one picked up. I proceeded to calling my phone and finally got through to someone on the third try. The representative told me he can send someone who would provide me with sheets, but I would have to do the bed myself. As a guest who is staying at a hotel with dirty sheets during covid and wanted to practice safety measures, I thought that was troubling. To my surprise, it was the security guard who had handed me multiple sheets. I called the front desk since changing the sheets at the hotel room seemed overwhelming (I was handed multiple sheets, covers and blankets). The front desk agreed to move me into another room. Once I packed up all my belongings and moved, the curtain in the new room was not working. The rod was sticking out of the curtain and the curtain wasn't opening or closing. The front desk did not have any other solution for me. I went back to my original room and had to change the sheets. The next morning, I woke up and the front desk had told me they would waive the $25 fee for the first two nights of the hotel and provide me with $50 credit to be used at their restaurant. For a four star hotel to have such an underwhelming response was upsetting.

"Gaslamp Stay"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The hotel was ok. I mean its great it is downtown but parking everywhere including the valet hotel is extremely expensive. The hallways were always hot and muggy. The beds were really uncomfortable. For the price we paid I would of expected all of these issues not to exist. The best hotel we have stayed in overall in the gaslamp was Hardrock. We probably will never stay in downtown again though. This is the last time. I just don't think it is worth the extra hotel fees and parking fees.
